Re: Straight Talk

Straighttalk eased up on the cutoffs and throttling because of bad PR they were getting, including customer service reps and other company representatives calling users and yelling at them over "excessive" data usage and minutes and text usage. Remember, ST, and by extension TracPhone is owned by Mexico teleco giant Carlos Slim, and their service centers get away with crap like that in Mexico, whereas here, they got slapped with a few lawsuits and they eased up on the throttling. Also, I found a way around the throttling, but it only works if you gain access to the iPhone APN settings.

There is a way around it? Are you using an apn for a diffrent mvno or an apn that is for technicians to use to test a phone's data service? Regardless, that is pretty interesting, but all networks have holes that you can push data through
